in discretionary spending cuts will drive the economy back into recession and cost 2 million jobs. on the other hand, it would go a long way to reducing the budget deficit. even by washington standards, that sounds important. to discuss the fiscal cliff, we have a panel of four budget watchers. format today will have each of our panelists speaking for about four minutes and i will ask questions and we will turn it over to the audience and give you a chance to ask questions. we have people watch it on c- span and the web. if you're not in the room and have questions, send them to public affairsaturbn,.org. we will start with donald. >> thanks to everybody for being here and raiding the rain to talk about the fiscal cliff. i will try not to ruin your lunch. we at the tax policy center put out a big report yesterday about the tax component of the fiscal cliff going through various details and what the effects would be on the american household. to want to make five basic points. the fiscal cliff really is bigger attacks point of view. if we remain there for all of 2013, it would be more than $500

likely to trust us. as hot spots are growing abroad, the economy is not growing at home. that is the problem we have to focus on. the economy is growing slower than last year. last year it grew slower than the year before. all the obama is offering is more of the same. we have a big choice to make. do we want more stagnation that fosters dependency or do we want a growing economy that creates opportunities and jobs? [applause] in a nutshell, we need leadership. look at the guy over my shoulder right here. [applause] if you look at this man's life story, one word comes to mind. leader. this is a man who turned around the olympics, turned around struggling businesses. by the way, being successful in business is a of thing. there is nothing wrong with that. we want more people to be successful. we want more of you to have prosperity with jobs with higher take-home pay. we want people to grow. when america has a jobs crisis, it would be nice to have a job creator in the white house. this is a man who has proven to get things done. when he was governor of massachusetts, he cu

a deregulated economy and we have produced through low taxes, not high taxes, through deregulation the spirit of entrepreneurship, the individual going out and starting a business, the businessman or women willing to go out and risk their investments to start up a business and hire people. we have produced 17 million jobs in this country since 1982. deregulation as a form of political philosophy is a good philosophy. it's one that our opponents disagree with. they want a centralized government. but we believe in the market, we believe in the people and yes, there's a role of government and the role of government is to make sure that those safety and health and the welfare of the people is taken care of. and we'll continue to do that. >> senator bentsen? >> well, i think you see once again a piece of democratic legislation that's been passed to try protect the working men and women of america. and then you've seen an administration that came in and really didn't have it's heart in that kind of an enforcement. a good example of that is the environmental protection laws that we were talking abou

and support. thank you both for coming. this is actually about jobs and economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is to come and put the money in the communities. i went down there today and he did not say, thank you for coming. please take this money and bring it back to washington. he said, go back to washington and tell them they need a reality check. we are tired of the overspending and the taxing and taking more money out of the economy. there are real challenges here. i used to live here. i worked and i lived over there. i understand. many businesses are hurting right now. regulatory tax uncertainty is the biggest challenge they ha

from the economy. it is the economy. that connection is strong. on the other hand, the public passion may make it harder. to my mind, those are the range of questions that we need to be looking at after the election ends. now what we will do is we will all come up here and katherine will lead this open-ended discussion and stump us. >> thank you for taking us off with 10 million questions to answer. >> just to start out, i think we're going to get into some of the nitty gritty of this. we're going to get down and dirty in the finance details. i'm looking forward to that. maybe we could start -- just indulge a libertarian -- talk to me a little bit about free speech. nobody mentioned that in their opening remarks. perfectly reasonable. there has been a macro debate in addition to the real hard money about campaign finance. is it the right kind of speech? indulge me with a little. >> that is the right place to start. we have a supreme court that started in the buckley decision back in the 70's and much more recently in citizens united. they have used the first amendment as a way to disq
